BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) – Lionel Messi has been ruled out of Wednesday’s international friendly against World Cup winners Germany with a right-leg injury.

The Argentine Football Association confirmed his absence today and called it a “precaution”.

The match in Dusseldorf is a chance for Argentina to avenge a 1-0 loss to Germany in extra time in the World Cup final almost two months ago.

Messi was injured yesterday in Barcelona’s 1-0 victory over Villarreal.
